Defect and Workaround Solution for Lineholder Picking Up Out of Base from Reserve
AFA and the company have identified a defect that occurs when a Reserve Flight Attendant has advertised a pairing that has either been assigned by Crew Scheduling or picked up on their days off, and an Out of Base Lineholder Flight Attendant attempts to pick it up. Currently, CCS does not recognize this type of trade and the Flight Attendant will receive the error “319 Base Mismatch”. As long as the trade meets all other Out of Base trade rules, as provided in Section 7.J. of the JCBA, it should not be rejected.
Until this defect is fixed, a workaround solution has been developed to allow these types of trades to be processed. Should you receive this type of error message when attempting this type of trade, please contact Crew Scheduling directly at 1-800-FLT-LINE, option 1, option 2. They will update your schedule so that you can resubmit the trade and allow it to be processed.
**Remember, all other trade rules and legalities still apply**
